Since you're already on the offensive against at least one army, and there will rarely (if at all) be 3 or more attacking you at the same time, dealing with defenses isn't as big of a problem as it sounds.
I think Hard and Lunatic are unlocked after clearing the game on Normal, along with the Extra and National modes. Of course, I might be wrong, since I didn't really pay attention to that. I don't think there's any real difference, except that everyone starts out at higher levels.
I went ahead and cleared out wriggle, alice, and Shiki's team, yeah. I know before hand that once you take the human village everyone gets a lot more aggressive, so I decided to take out as many enemies as I could.
Should I bother recruiting some of these generics? It's getting better, but it seems like if I use a party of 4-5 (usually what it takes for me to win a battle. Maybe) people I don't have enough left over for defense.
Also, I've used money to boost my characters up a few levels. Is that going to come bite me later on?
